Abstract:

The RISA Research of Ionospheric Scintillation in Asia project advanced Ionospheric studies in South-East Asia using space-geodetic systems, in particular by analyzing data acquired using dedicated or available GNSS Global Navigation Satellite Systems networks. This project also used activities carried out in the framework of the SCINDA Scintillation Network Decision Aid project, which is being implemented by Air Force Research Laboratory in South- East Asia. RISA has investigated the effects of ionospheric scintillation in distributed GNSS networks in Thailand and vicinity and the potential correlation with extreme space weather events. New stations in Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok Chiang Mai University, and Phuket have been installed and connected to main SCINDA network. RISA collaborated with International Civil Aviation Organization ICAO, Boston College, University of California Los Angeles and AMBER projects. This has given an opportunity to develop an intensive research base on impact of solar radiations on Ionosphere as well as Geomagnetism.
